"pooce say their current major concern is how young they're finding gang members -- younger than ever before. kids are being influenced by their older siblings who are already involved in the life, and police has seized hundreds of guns since their task
you can see some of them here. these guns used to be in the posession of dozens of former criminals, police estimate about 90% of them are from local gang members. "you know i can think of about three or four different families, where every male siblinin, with two or threeyear gaps, are involved in this lifestyle, and they're very violent." violent as they may be...theres one thing police, john, and this man can agree on... 'these kids that think they all that, all this and a bag of chips... if they went to chicago... they wwld be... they would be dead in ten minutes"
he calls himself a concerned citizen. others call him a one thing is for sure about mosley... he doesn't ressect gang members in waterloo. "a real gang member has honor, integrity, and everything else... but they're on that side of the fence...these kids, don't even know what time of day it is, probably cant even afford a because this is not the foundation. they would be foot soldiers" john has been out of the bloods for a while. he says gang life now has done a 180. "its no more fightin, fist to fist, its stabbin, but mostly guns, they shooting and they aint lookin who they shootin at" "quit closin' youueyes when youou l the trigger!" "you just pullin the trigger, you just pullin it but you don't even know where you lookin'" in the dozens of shots fired callslsin 2015... rdly any of them resulted in any actual person
